Brief Answer:
Hymen is likely to be absent

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Majority of cases of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia with xx karyotype do not have hymen . As there is common vaginal and urethral channel there is underdevelopment of lower 1/3 of Vagina leading to absence of hymen in majority.
It would be helpful if you could send clinical photograph for further assessment.


Take care

Now they are asking for 3rd time Blood sample. it is very pity for taking the blood of 1 month old for the 3rd time as his veins are still not showing up.
